Saare Jahan Se Acha Hindustan hamara

By RK Rishikesh Sinha, New Delhi Students of Kendriya Vidyalayas, the largest system of Central government schools in India , which serve children of Defence Personnel, share something common in their experiences of school days.

Traveling to Places

Personal Jottings By RK Rishikesh Sinha, New Delhi The only time I visit new places in Delhi is when I join in a new job - in a new location. If there is no change of job, I don’t see any other reason to pay a visit. You can say I live in a claustrophobic world. Making me round the whole city and surrounding areas – change of office, I will cite one strong reason to see this city in different time periods. It is amazing to see - How the city looks at morning office hours and at evening, when people struggle to get to their home as early as possible! What is the importance of a new job? Not to mention, with pay hike, if there is something that goes with the change of job, it is exploring the adjoining areas, remembering the bus routes. Extend it to remembering the shortest routes to get into office. It is altogether a new vibrant world. New colleagues, new office culture and new bus conductors. Looking back in my life, I see I had been maintaining a self-imposed radius of my t
